Candy Apple

Candy Apple

10 small red apples
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
3/4 cup water
8 drops red food coloring

You will also need:
10 barbecue skewers

Wash and dry the apples. Put each one on a skewer. Mix sugar, corn syrup and water in a pot and heat it on a medium fire until the sugar melts. When it starts to boil, add the food coloring. Let it boil without stirring for 20 minutes, untill it gets to 160ºC (use a special thermometer for this). Remove it from the fire.
Dip the apples, one at a time in this mixture. Turn the apples around so that the mixture should cover the apples completely. Set aside with the stick upward to let it cool completely.
